Big Sister Little Brother/Stora syster lille bror

 A fun story about being young while still having great responsibility. Regardless of if the days are long or short, they all end the same way: Little brother is sad. Big sister has to make him feel better and help him get what he wants the most. 

And how lucky that the neighbors are so generous! The Candy Woman with all the sweets, Apple Man with a boat in a bottle, and Wonderful Walter who can roll his eyes, and his cat Pelle – they all understand exactly what it is that Little brother needs. 

By ALMA recipient Barbro Lindgren. First published in 1992.
